I'm new to the Arduino platform, but I LOVE it. It's really easy. I've been writing some simple stuff to learn. Until now the Arduino has been hooked up to my MacBook, so no problem there with connecting or whatever. The idea is that the Arduino serves as a server controller thermostat later on. This idea includes the Arduino being connected to my (always on) home (file) server, running FreeNAS. FreeNAS will monitor the stream of sensor data received from the Arduino, etcetera. Problem is, where my MacBook finds the Arduino and can read the serial console using tail -f /dev/tty.usbmodemfa131, FreeNAS doesn't recognize the Arduino. I can write the sketches on my MacBook, so I don't need the IDE on FreeNAS, just want to be able to read and write the serial console.
Now I've been searching on the internet for some time now. All I can find is that FreeBSD/FreeNAS needs the uarduno port. And this is where it stops for me, I have no clue on how to install this.
Does anyone here have any experience with this?
